Merry Monday #94

It's time for another challenge over at 
The challenge this week is to use a stocking on your card.

You may recognize the background on this card. I had
some pieces leftover from a recent card stack and thought
I would use them on this card. The card is mostly
masculine with a touch of femininity by use of the
vintage lace flower and ribbon.

I've really enjoyed these challenges. It's a great way to get a head
start on your Christmas cards and also a great way to
keep the creative juices flowing.

all products are stampin' up! unless noted
card stock: very vanilla, pool party, early espresso, crumb cake
stamp set: hardwood,  merry merry (recollections)
ink: crumb cake, early espresso
big shot: adorning accents EF, designer frames EF
embellishments: linen thread, 1 1'4" burlap, 7/16" trim, 
       5/8" victoria crochet trim, vintage lace flower (retired)

Happy Stampin'
